As Barnes was passing by the north end of Loop 393, a white 2006 Ford Taurus, driven by Jaliyah Tshay Chriss, 18, of Jersey Village, attempted to cross from the north-bound side of 59 to Loop 393. Chriss failed to yield to Barnes. Barnes' vehicle slammed the back side of Chriss' vehicle. The impact spun Chriss' vehicle around facing east. Barnes' vehicle came to rest in the grassy center median. Americare and Allegiance Ambulance Services were dispatched to the scene along with Goodrich and Livingston Volunteer Fire Departments, Deputy Michael Powell with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Troopers Darwon Evans, Colton McQuilkin, and Ashlee White with the Texas Highway Patrol. Chriss and her passenger were transported by ambulance to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Barnes was physically okay. Traffic on the south-bound side of 59 was not blocked during investigation and cleanup. Chriss was cited for failure to yield, no insurance, and expired registration. Both vehicles were recovered by Ken's Towing and will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
